Game Of Thrones Editors Removed the Coffee Cup From the Latest Episode 4: Game Of Thrones bosses have ordered the coffee cup that made a surprise appearance in a scene from the most recent episode be edited out for streaming and catch-up.
Season 8, episode 4 had fans reeling as they spied a takeout cup sat on the table in the Great Hall in front of character Daenerys Targaryen.
But the cup will now no longer appear in the episode when watched on services such as HBO Go, Sky, Now TV or when it’s released on DVD.
The official GOT Twitter account poked fun at the blunder by tweeting: ‘News from Winterfell. The latte that appeared in the episode was a mistake. Daenerys had ordered an herbal tea.’
The misplaced cup appeared to undermine the credibility of the hit show on Sunday evening, with fans complaining the week before that the editing was way too dark to see what was going on.
Fans stayed up late to watch an eventful fourth episode as the long-running fantasy drama, now in its eighth season, prepares for a bloody conclusion in little more than a fortnight’s time.
But they were spitting their cocoa out after spotting the beverage in Winterfell’s Great Hall, in a pivotal scene for Jon Snow and the united army of Wildlings, Unsullied and Dothraki warriors.
More familiar with a horn of ale than a coconut cappuccino, Jon and Daenerys appeared oblivious to the offending cup, placed on one of the hall’s long trestle-tables, as their raucous celebrations kicked off the episode.
But the gaffe was not lost on eagle-eyed viewers, who promptly expressed their disbelief on social media.
